Glentoran Seconds manager, Spike Hill today gave us his thoughts on the new season.
Not even a fantastic goal by Johnny Addis could help Glentoran today at Carrick Rangers. The final score was 3-1 to Carrick Rangers.

Glentoran recorded an emphatic 6-1 win in their annual friendly match with Dundela at Wilgar Park.
The home side included a host of former Glentoran players for this game including the recently released Owain Beggs, former striker Michael Halliday along with Ross Davidson, Kyle Cherry, Daniel Burns and a few others.
Glentoran u13s competed in the Foyle Cup for the second season running and again made the semi-finals only to lose to a full time academy outfit. Last season the boys crashed 3-2 to Hearts and their hearts were broken again this year, by Sheffield United this time after an agonising penalty shoot out.
Glentoran were this week represented in the Foyle Cup with two teams at mini-soccer level (Under 10), the U12s, the U13s and the U16s.
Glentoran performed admirably winning our first 13 games in the competition across all the teams. The mini-soccer were excellent and secured top 10 finishes whilst in the main competition, the U13s were heartbreakingly defeated by Sheffield United on penalties in the semi final and the U16s lost in the Final at the Brandywell 2-1 to Derry Colts.
